It's probably "DuMont" as well.
"You asked for it" aired on the DuMont network until Dec. 7, 1951. This show features a tribute to Lou Gehrig. During that segment there was mention of his farewell at Yankee stadium 12 years ago. That of course was on July 4, 1939.

Mixed bag episode of "YOU ASKED FOR IT", featuring some very nice things and some not so nice things. I love that bullet proof vest demonstation, I thought that was cool. But that clown act is too french for my taste.
